Handed in today this quilt I had been putting together after meeting up with a local women’s group. Each member of the group had chosen a combination of hearts, stars and squares, which they sewed together and decorated with sequins. It was part of a days workshop looking at well-being, which I do believe crafts can play a big part in.
I took all these beautiful squares away, placed them, patched them and then quilted. The piece will now hang at one of the group’s meeting places and I know a number of the women felt like continuing with the skills they had learnt at home. I know, that having pieced this together, it has given me the urge to start patch-working again!
